TROY — The Kiwanis Club of Troy has sponsored the formation of a local Aktion Club, a branch of Kiwanis for adults with disabilities who are interested in serving their communities
The Aktion Club meetings began in January and so far has 21 members. Meetings are the first and second Wednesdays of each month at Riverside at 3:30 p.m., but the goal is to eventually move meetings off-site to a community location.
Their first service project was making and delivering Valentine cards to residents at Covington Care Center in February. In March, they elected officers for the club. In April, their service project is going to be assisting Kiwanis with their annual Pancake Days fundraiser on April 9 at the Staunton Grange.
Kiwanis members have been active in getting the group up and running, with three to four attending each Aktion Club meeting.
Now that officers are elected, the group will plan their induction ceremony, as well as upcoming service projects.
